Nutritional Value of VCO Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) has multiple utilities, nutritional and medicinal use which are found in its content. The Virgin Coconut oil is an abundant source of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Thus, making it the “mother of all oils”. VCO’s contains minor extents mono and diglycerides and has the most noteworthy substance of glycerol around 13.5% to 15.0%. Glycerol is a starch which has a comparative substance structure to that of a basic sugar.
Health Benefits of Coconut Oil Because of its plethora of health benefits, Coconut Oil has rightly won the title of Superfood. Coconut Oil is also available in the market as “extra Virgin” Coconut Oil. This simply means that the oil has not been processed (bleached, deodorized, refined etc.) Below are some of the Pivotal health benefits of Coconut Oil: 1. Coconut Oil Supports Brain and nervous System functions: Coconut oil contains Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) – which are fatty acids of a medium length.
Everything that Allah created has its purposes and benefits to all mankind. Same goes to beta-carotene that existed in fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene has its own benefits to us. Beta-carotene is very rich in vitamin A which is very important to us. Beta-carotene that can be converted by the body into retinol is referred to as pro-vitamin A carotenoids.
The value of the properties of oil and biodiesel is slightly deviate from standards but these are acceptable and meets the standard requirements. 2.6 FATTY ACID COMPOSITION The major saturated fatty acids in Jatropha curcas seed oil were palmitic and stearic acids, the main unsaturated fatty acid were oleic acid and linoleic acid .The two oil sample of Jatrophacurcas contained saturated and unsaturated acid respectively. Jatropha curcas oil can be classified in the oleic and linoleic acid group. Linoleic acid which is one of the most important poly unsaturated fatty acids in human food because of its prevention of distinct heart vascular diseases .Jatropha curcas oil is predominantly made up of oleic and linoleic acids respectively. It is observed 0 % of linolenic acid C18:3.
Know the different ways of consuming CBD concentrates What are CBD concentrates? CBD concentrates are the products derived from the extraction process of a cannabinoid. There are various concentrates available to buy and many of them are copious in specific cannabinoids, like CBD or Cannabidiol and THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. As THC is recognized for its psychoactive and pain-killing effects, it is considered the most popular cannabinoid. On the other hand, CBD is also known for its major health benefits, without the high effects on the perception and the mood of a user.
Coconut oil provides a myriad of health benefits, affordable and completely natural. All the advantages coming from coconut oil fatty acids and their antimicrobial, antioxidant, antibacterial and soothing properties. Acid containing coconut oil are lauric, caprylic, and caproic. Coconut oil is composed of more than 95% saturated fat, with trace amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. In addition to fatty acids, coconut oil is a rich source of vitamin E and K, iron, calcium and magnesium.
Most naturally occurring fatty acids have an unbranched chain of an even number of carbon atoms, from 4 to 28. Fatty acids are usually derived from triglycerides or phospholipids. Fatty acids that have carbon–carbon double bonds are known as unsaturated. Fatty acids without double bonds are known as saturated. They differ in length as well.
Free oleic acid levels in food grade olive oil are mandated to be less than 2% as more than this makes the oil inedible. Extra virgin olive oils will have less than 0.8% free oleic acid. Other vegetable and nut oils also contain high levels of oleic acid in their triglycerides with canola oil (60%–65%) having the second highest amount compared to olive oil, pecan oil has 60%–75% oleic in triglyceride, peanut oil is 35%–70%, sunflower oil is 20%–80%, and grape seed oil is 15%–20%. Animal fats are also high in oleic acid with lard and tallow containing 44%–47% in the triglyceride
3.1 Feed characteristics The dried Eruca sativa plant had 51.5 wt% straw and 48.5 wt% seeds. The oil content of the seeds and the extraction yield were 38.4% and 81.1%, respectively. Table 1 shows characteristics of the extracted oil in which high free fatty acids content in the oil is one of the most important properties. The most dominant fatty acid was oleic acid by 61.1%, followed by linoleic and linolenic acids which are valuable unsaturated fatty acids. In addition, carbohydrates and lignin content of the plant residues have been reported in Table 2.
Pomegranate has been known for its antioxidant activity. A lot of study has been conducted on pomegranate and its derivative such as peel, seed and juice that are rich sources of bioactive compound such as vitamin C, vitamin K, polyphenols and flavonoids. Its functional properties of high antioxidant activity give rise to functional food products in the market that give benefits to heart and prostate health. Therefore this study was conducted to incorporate pomegranate as a source of antioxidant into coconut spread. The objectives of this study are: • To develop coconut pomegranate spread with added value (antioxidant) • To determine physicochemical properties of coconut pomegranate spread CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEW Properties of coconut
